Flowers blooming through the frost; children bearing flowers and hand written notes; friend holding my hand and listening to me speak earnestly about my fears; friend from far away singing to me healing songs over the phone; watching Mary Poppins right after Saving Mr. Banks on the same afternoon; on a brisk, fall day completing my 4-mile walk with energy again; cooking a huge chicken soup with vegetables including kale, savoy cabbage, carrots, zucchini, onions, leek, dill, green pepper, onion and loads of garlic; surviving to thrive again, and again, and again; family, friends, neighbors, and the kindness of strangers; connecting and reconnecting; being in the moment – breathing in and out; early morning light.
